Pray BFF Letter #316

Global Occupation

Dear Prayer Partners,

Many people say the Lord’s Prayer without seriously considering what they are asking, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10). They are asking for God’s heavenly Word to permeate every part of this globe  with the hope that people will hear, believe, and obey the Word of God, thus foreshadowing God’s heavenly kingdom. This is BFF’s ministry and vision. I am very grateful for your prayers that thrust us toward this goal. 

As I look back and review the year, in preparation for the annual BFF board meeting (November 19th), I am greatly encouraged.  I am awed at where God has taken BFF. I sense His guidance and help each step of the way. If He wasn’t there, then there would be no BFF. If the BFF website usage continues through November and December as it has been, projected annual page views will reach 3 ½ million from readers around the world. The Lord is benefitting and profiting people from around the world with BFF  resources.

And the resources, by God’s grace, are pouring in. I wrote two books this summer that I never dreamed of writing. One started on an airplane trip to Nepal where God burdened my heart with the need to make known what He was teaching me. The other one, A Spiritual Map for Unity, came from an insight from my favorite game—chess. But since I have been so engaged with other matters, I haven’t had time to make proper web pages for these resources. All of it is God’s grace from beginning to end. Your prayers play a key role in the development of new resources as well as the distribution of them.

For example, I recently got an email from an Ethiopian brother located in a Middle Eastern country requesting our resources. There they are, a church of about 100, seeking discipleship resources. I could and did, send a quick email to him and gave him free access to all our resources. It’s just amazing that God enables us to provide such a plethora of helpful biblical resources (they keep telling us) in an instance. This particular church, I am told, has to meet underground, and the pastor had this person look for resources. Now, he, the pastor and others possess access to all these biblical resources. It amazes me. 

We greatly desire your prayers for the development and distribution of resources to the people who will use them and thus increase the momentum to bring God’s heavenly kingdom down to every place on earth.
